Hard hitting documentary 'They Go To Die' coming to a city near you this March!
This March, RESULTS are working with director and epidemiologist Jonathan Smith to bring his hard hitting documentary- 'They Go To Die'- to cinemas and lecturer theatres across the UK.
'They Go To Die' is a documentary investigating the life’s of four former migrant gold mineworkers in South Africa and Swaziland who have contracted drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) and HIV while working at a gold mine. When the miners fail to improve their TB status at the mining hospital, they are sent home to rural areas of Southern Africa often with no continuation of care or means of treatment. This practice is often referred to as “sending them home to die” by leading health officials.
The film raises concerns of disease and human rights violations uniquely though the context of life, love, and family; unlike traditional health films, it focuses on relationships and bonding, not death and disease. It is a film of uniting across cultures and paints a portrait of common humanity. To find out more about the film and to view a trailer, take a look at the films website - theygotodie.com
Below are the dates of the tour. Some venues and times are still to be confirmed. These will be updated as soon as they have been finalised.
